Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Trail Blazers have struggled still and adding Carmelo Anthony saved them from sinking even further. With the injuries of Josef Nurkic and other rotation players for the Trail Blazers, this team is poised to fail living up to expectations after a huge playoff run last season. Hassan Whiteside has been a good compliment to CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard but they need more from their bench. Anfernee Sims has been their best player from the bench but other than that, they can’t find consistency. The Blazers are a team that look like they found the right formula as they are coming from a 10-point victory at home against the Houston Rockets.

Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Mavericks have been one of the most exciting teams to watch on NBA League Pass and credit that to the exciting play of Luka Doncic. His game elevated the Mavericks and will give this team a good run to the championship for this decade. Teaming up with Kristaps Porzingis made them a force but they can’t seem to be playing together as injuries hampered them alternately. The pieces around Doncic have been full of shooters with Dorian Finney-Smith, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Seth Curry. Against the Blazers, Doncic will find his way to dominate and look for him for those kick-outs to the outside. The Mavericks are on a roll with a three-game winning streak but this is a good test for them as they battle the Blazers without Kristaps Porzingis.

Players to Watch: L. Doncic SF 37 GP 37 GS 32.8 MIN 28.8 PTS 1.4 OR 8.3 DR 9.8 REB 9 AST 1.1 STL 0.1 BLK 4.4 TO 2.4 PF 2.1 AST/TO 30.01 PER
